    Cinn Boondockers:
    December 23, 2019One of the main reasons I boondock: I'm not retired yet, so while I am sitting inside working all day -- I'd much rather have a scenic view out my window. Why do YOU boondock?
    • Mlh and 33 others like this.

      Mlh December 23, 2019 That’s why we boondock. I live in the country, not found of neighbors.

      Seann ( the Canadian) December 23, 2019 Main reason is I don't like to be jammed in like a sardine

        Robb & Charles December 23, 2019 ...and, yet, when out boondocking our little hearts out, somebody, invariably, will park within 15 yds. of us.

        Cinn December 23, 2019 I try to choose spots where that wouldn't be easily possible.

      Hillary December 23, 2019 I'm all about the nature! I don't mind having neighbors, but I'd like them a bit further away then most RV parks space out the sites so I tend to prefer boondocking. When we are out in the RV I like going to places with easy access hiking and swimming.

        Steve N Z December 23, 2019 Im in the boondocks where I live. I will take the view on the right !  :  )

      Robbie & Alice December 23, 2019 We have worked very hard as full timers / boondockers (14 years) to be self-sufficient so we don't need RV parks.  There are so many reasons to list here why we prefer our lifestyle to the way sardines live.

        Tony Polisi December 27, 2019 14 years wow. You must have a lot of knowledge. Would you share a couple of the most important things you've learned? I promise not to park right next to you....lol....

      Mike and Donna Wagner December 23, 2019 For the same reasons you do - it's all about the view and the solitude and peace. ~Donna

      Beans and I on the Loose December 23, 2019 Boondocking offers freedom. Freedom of choice in your surroundings and freedom of choice in those around you.

        Mlh December 23, 2019 I like to camp in the Shirley Basin in Wyoming. 10 mile from the nearest house and 2 miles from a road or Union Pass Wyoming where your radio wont work and forget about a cell phone.

      Charles Jackson December 23, 2019 I am retired, and I want to learn how to live somewhere besides RV parks!!

      • Cinn
        Robbie & Alice December 23, 2019 Charles, most of it is pure commons sense.  We are amazed at how much money people will spend to stay in RV parks when they could be putting that money into equipment that makes camping free and with all those free amenities!!!

      Dennis Siepierski December 23, 2019 I can have neighbors on my own terms. Sometimes I am really sociable, sometimes not so much. I park as close or as far from others as I currently feel. Plus no chemlawn, leaf blowers, park rules etc. My dog has lived most of her life on BLM land and...  more

        Cinn December 23, 2019 No chemlawn or leafblowers! Good reasons to boondock!  :)
    • Cinn
      Ed of AZ December 23, 2019 Simple. I boondock because I can. I didn't get an RV to park it in town, and paying for a place to sleep when there are so many beautiful, quiet, and uncrowded places available just seems like a waste of money.
    • Cinn
      Kingmorel December 23, 2019 I got to thinking on this... I realized that here in Canada we call boondocking simply camping. As a wildcrafter I have been camping (boondocking) for close to 40 years.... 99% of the time on what we call crown land (similar to BLM in th...  more

      HuJen & 7 December 23, 2019 So many of us  love the open spaces, beautiful nature and serenity that we just have to go find those places. I feel a kinship with others that feel that way too.
    • Cinn
      John And Debbie Maxson December 24, 2019 We love the view. Can have a great camp fire. See wild life. All for a great price.
    • Cinn
      David & Ninette Tigner December 24, 2019 Lots of great reasons and every person is different so there should be. Some parks are nice and spaced out but the biggest reason we don't stay there is the cost. Although the ones we have stayed at this past year allowed us to dry camp at a very cheap pr...  more

      Tony & Shari December 25, 2019 We boom dock at lakes and we boon dock when we are on the road.

      Tony Polisi December 27, 2019 The last time I was in a RV park it was worse then living in an apartment in a city. Kids on bikes screaming, people everywhere. I don't understand why you would go to a RV park to be 10 ft from your neighbor. I can do that at home. As far as the amenitie...  more

        Cinn December 27, 2019 I boondock for all of those reasons too, but it's been so long since I've experienced an RV park that I've forgotten about all those things. Perhaps the other boondockers replying to this are far-removed from those experiences as well.

        TheClearyClan December 27, 2019 We keep our motorhome in an RV Park. We do not have room to keep it near our house. I also see that as a security issue, if the big rig is missing, then no one is home, come take the TV, microwave, etc. To keep it in a storage yard in a parking spot near ...  more

        RicU December 28, 2019 Bob, in your area, you have the right idea about security. If you wanted too you could come up to my park and store your RV in a gated community and get electric and water.

        TheClearyClan December 28, 2019 RicU I have a cousin that lives in the Hideout in the Lake Aerial area. No RVs allowed next to the houses in the development, but they do have a fantastic campground in the development. My two brothers and I gathered there a couple of years ago. We used their camp fire ring that is about 10 feet in diameter.
